  • Backlash against feds
    Why are you surprised? A recession has devasted America. Have feds been laid off? Have they been furloughed? Have they had their pay raises suspended? Were bonuses suspended? Were promotions or hiring frozen? If feds had worked almost anywhere else, and certainly in state and local government, this would have been their fate. Feds are good people; why aren't they volunteering to share the pain? Maybe forego the payraise for a year? maybe drop bonuses for a year? How about retired feds? why don't they argue for cutting their COLA in half for good? (I know that half of zero is zero for last year and probably next, but some year it may be important.) Let's not wait for publicity-hungry politicians to propose it.
